#3586 closed defect (fixed)

Activity Toolbar Description input field should soft wrap text

Reported by: garycmartin Owned by: erikos
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.96.x
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: erikos Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Assigned

Description

When using the new Description feature (Activity toolbar for adding description data to the Journal entry), the input field does not soft wrap to the entry field width so you just endlessly type on one long scrolling line unless you manually insert line feeds. Makes it very hard to read anything but trivial short snippets of text without scrolling left and right to see the rest of the paragraph/sentence.

Can be easily fixed by editing sugar/activity/widgets.py and sugar3/activity/widgets.py and adding the below at around line 257:

self._text_view.set_wrap_mode(gtk.WRAP_WORD_CHAR)

This soft wraps the existing text and new text that you type to fit the horizontal width of the text view.

Correction, sugar3 uses Gtk and not gtk as well as some other changes, so editing sugar/activity/widgets.py needs:

self._text_view.set_wrap_mode(gtk.WRAP_WORD_CHAR)

... and sugar3/activity/widgets.py needs:

self._text_view.set_wrap_mode(Gtk.WrapMode.WORD_CHAR)
